I once worked with four troubled young siblings and I used to take them out in the hills to get away from the stress of their everyday lives. Ballinacorbeg Hill is one of the first hills we ever climbed and I retraced part of our route when I revisited this hill recently. The ascent is straightforward - park at ruined Derralossary Church outside Roundwood and head up along a track which starts at the corner of the road just a 100 feet from the church. The summit is off to the right (west) so branch off the track at some point to head up across the fields. From the Trig pillar and nearby large granite boulder are fabulous views of the low hills to the east and the higher summits such as Scarr to the west and the ever present Great Sugarloaf to the north. A lovely place to linger on a fine day and (in my case) hear the joyful echoes of the past
